Welcome to The Scripts!

There are numerous good books available. Before going into a shooping frenzy, maybe you should have a look at the following PHPm tutorials which are free.
After you have browsed these, you can probably make a better decision on what book you need.

http://www.allsyntax.com/tutorials/PHP/
http://devzone.zend.com/node/view/id/627
http://www.tizag.com/phpT/
http://www.phpfreaks.com/tutorials.php
http://www.minitutorials.com/webdesi...trotophp_1.php
http://bmw.ws.utk.edu/nsu/php/
http://www.developer.com/lang/php/article.php/3288671
http://www.w3schools.com

When you insist on a book list, look at the following:
  • "Beginning PHP, Apache, MySQL and Web Development", E. Naramore e.a., Wrox Inc., ISBN 0-7645-7966-5
  • "Learning PHP 5", David Sklar, O'Reilly, ISBN 0-596-00569-1
  • "Beginning PHP 5 and MYSQL, from Novice to Professional", David Sklar, Apress

I might also recommend using, when you need help with a specific function, php.net/[FUNCTION NAME], just put your function there (ex. php.net/str_replace will give you information about the str_replace function), you will also get little snippets of code to learn how to use that specific funstion.

Then you might as well point to the (simple) PHP introduction and tutorial in the PHP manual at Getting Started
